Post Strange spammers' behavior
Hey guys, I've been managing the user list for and I have one repeat offender that I can't ban because he/she/it changes ip address, just putting up bulk registrations following the following scheme: First name, underscore, lastname, underscore, 4-6 digit hexadecimal code. As always, the user name does not match up with the provided e-mail address. Eg: username= John_Smith_13a3. e-mail=
And these fake users just keep posting these meaningless links:
[url=]bloc partyhelicopter mp3[/url:250yxszb]
[url=]chingyholiday inn[/url:250yxszb]

I'm using phpBB (ver 2.022, waiting for the IT guy to upgrade to 2.023), and it seems that I can't figure out where he's coming from because phpBB won't allow me to see the IP address unless they put up a posting. And sadly, I can't ban the e-mail domain name, as all of the spammer e-mail addresses are coming from, which is legit.

So far, I've banned specific keywords and domains (just about anything with .ru, .biz, "cialis", "tramadol", "viagra", etc.), but these ones are slipping through the cracks. Anybody know which IP addresses I should ban?
